kurt-geiger-espies.jpgI like the way that KG have taken the espadrille and made it almost as unlike itself as possible with this shoe. The woven sole is their in evidence, but they've painted it black and stacked it up so high they might have used four 'normal' espies in the making of this style.

Somehow it all works beautifully, and the perforated, patent uppers are a bit of a novelty, too. Great choice for those who don't particularly want to go all floaty and bohemian this summer.
